Last night on “All In with Chris Hayes,” CBC Chairman Cedric L. Richmond (D-LA-02) intentionally wore a baseball cap, t-shirt, and puffy vest to make a point about racial biases and the everyday racism of folks like President Trump, Rosanne Barr, and the man who killed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in 2012. During the show, Chairman Richmond also discussed an open letter he wrote to white people about how their racial biases lead in part to the over-policing of African Americans who are simply “breathing while black.” The show aired an hour before MSNBC’s town hall “Everyday Racism in America”.
